Leap Of Faith

We've been on a bit of a vacation this week. It hasn't been a total vacation for me since I still have to write and get all that done, but we were at Lake Powell this week and are now on our way home.

Just wanted to share something here. Yvie is quite the adventurous girl. Check this out. It's kind of hard to see but she's on the far side here.


That's a pretty steep cliff there, quite the far fall.

It's probably a 15-foot cliff, maybe 20. She didn't seem to mind.

There. You can see her little legs stick out moments before they hit the water.

I didn't actually get a shot of her hitting the water or in the water because it was a far fall, but she was all smiles... mostly. She seemed a bit scared but was happy she had done it.

I got to do it as well. Not sure if I'll post the picture but you'll have to take my word for it. It was a steep jump and I was frightened. But dammit, if my 6-year-old daughter did it, I had to do it.

I'll be back in Cali soon enough. Enjoy your day, and if you see a 15- to 20-foot cliff overlooking water, jump!

Holy smokes, that Yvie is sure one brave girl! No way will you ever see me doing that. I think it is so important not to instill your own fears into your children, either knowingly or unknowingly as my mom did with me (water) :o( I really want to take swimming lessons one day but I fear ridicule.

Yikes! I would've chickened out. Way to go Yvie!

That is so cool! And so funny your ego didn't let your 6 year old trump you! Hahaha! Have a safe trip home!
